Graphics card buzz/hum (Not the fan)

Hello,

I recently got an MSI GTX 670 and although the card itself is a beast, there is strange buzz/hum coming from it. I stopped the fan to see if that was the problem but it's not. I don't know if it's a problem or just the way the card is built. It's the kind of noise that gets louder when I play games like BF3 but it's always there even when the PC is idle. Does anyone have this card and/or experience the same thing? I want to know if my card is faulty or if it's supposed to be like that. The sound isn't deafening but rather annoying.

it is a defect. but use a paper tube to see if your mb or power supply. it called coil wine. there a bad coil in the power section of the video card or in your system. it used to stop voltage spikes. if they did not ground it on glue it right to the video card when it working it can vibrate and M\ake that noise.
